. a catholic priest of 34 years and he joins us from san francisco. thank you for being on "the young turks"." >> hello michael i've been laughing, listening to your wind up here to the conclave, batman and all that. >> michael: good, i'm glad. it worked. how about that. matthew, let's talk about the serious side of what's going to happen tomorrow just for a moment. there is a lot that goes into the selection of the pope mechanically, but what can the church do with their choice that would change the way they're perceived around the world now? >> well, i have two suggestions. one is to elect the dalai lama the new pope. that would clean things up overnight. it would change all the power struggles, and he wouldn't even have to show up very much, maybe three or four times a year give a talk from the balcony and then the whole thing can become the museum that it is. sell extra paintings and give money to the poor. who is looking to the van vatican today for spiritual or moral leadership? no one. that's my first choice. the second choice would be the sister from eerie pennsylvania, who is in th
for covering this from the vatican. we appreciate it. let's go to matthew fox from san francisco, founder of friends grace and spiritual. he is author of a book "the pope's war." matthew, i know you're going to dive a little deeper here, so what is your first read on pope francis? >> i think the positive side, you mentioned many things, third world pope. he lived a very simple life. he turned down a palace and lives in a simple apartment. he takes the bus to work and cooks his own meals. he's not particularly ambitious. he didn't climb the ladder like benedict xvi. that's a plus. he took the name francis, which is presumably about rebuilding the church because that was francis' dream. and i wish him well. also he's been a good pastoral man, visiting a.i.d.s. patients and things like that. that's the bright side. the shadow side or the red flags that come up are that he was a member of communion liberation. i write about this group in my book "the pope's war." they're the italian version of opus dei. maybe as a pope he'll open things up, but they are all about obedience and nothing more. i

legalization? >> here in california, you have the representative of san francisco who is an advocate. even he says that here in california, the majority of his fellow lawmakers are afraid of their own shadow with regards to changing marijuana law. try to imagine this situation playing out in any deeply red state, and you can just imagine. michael: what's compelling too is this whole idea of taxing. they're going to tax so heavily this marv marijuana, how soon until the people go back to the black market? >> marijuana is widely available in this country. tenth graders report easy access to it. the most common price paid is zero, it's gifted to them by friends. any type of taxation above and beyond the actual cost to produce is going to run into the reality on the street where pot's available for cheap. >> i love when 10th graders are the demographic. we polled 10th graders. >> everyone talks about keeping this drug away from kids and that's why they're against all these changes to laws. it's important to remember for decades, the drug's been widely available. >> the blog is called smell the tr

is the company behind xl. joining me now from san francisco, is daniel souweine, campaign manager for forecast the facts, and organizations fighting against climate change denial denial. daniel, welcome into "the war room." >> thanks for having me michael. >> michael: so is the source of this report problematic in anyway? >> definitely. this was written by a company, environmental resource management which works for and it is paid for by trans-canada, which is the company that wants to build the keystone pipeline. so this is a company that has a financial interest in seeing the pipeline built, so it's not really surprietsing then that they have essentially come to the conclusion that the project should get a green light. >> michael: right. it's like republican internal polls that showed romney winning. how common is this practice now? >> it's actually all together too common. it's not that this happens on every single project, but it's certainly a standard procedure to have this kind of report be written by the companies seeking to either build pipe lines or other proj
demonstrations in 29 u.s. states. in san francisco, a small crowd rallied to support a ban on assault weapon sales and in indianapolis protestors stood outside the state house and demanded tougher gun laws be passed. mayors against illegal guns released a new ad with sandy hook victims' families calling for sensible and popular gun control. >> i want to prevent any other family from having to go through what we're going through. >> i owe it to my son, jesse, to speak out for changes to be made. >> it's not taking guns away from people. it's making it a safer place for everybody. >> john: try telling that to congress. you see, in the senate, iowa republican chuck grassley says he will introduce his own gun control bill that excludes universal background checks for gun buyers which 90% of americans support. and senators marco rubio and mike lee said today they would join fellow republicans rand paul and ted cruz in blocking majority leader harry reid from bringing his gun control bill to the floor. they don't even want it to come to a vote. meanwhile, investigators have released a list of the

in san francisco. how are you? caller: good how's it going? i just wanted to congratulate you yet. i don't normally listen to this show, i don't get it live, and i'm a libertarian but when you were talking about how they were handling the rape case, i wanted to applaud you for calling out the candy crowley. if we have more people calling out inappropriate behavior regardless of their political leaning, i think that's how we can bring the gap. for instance, it was stupid of whatever those politicians were that said oh, a woman's body shuts down during rape, that guy you should be out of there. i don't care if he's a republican or what, he should be completely out of there. hal: i totally agree with you and i think regardless of party if somebody said that should lose their seat. the interesting thing is you would be very wont to find a democratic who would say that or a genuine libertarian who would say that. everyone knows i toured with doug stanholt. he ran as a libertarian in 2008. he's a terrific guy probably the last person you would want in the white house because he makes his livin
